BENCHMARKING THE SA VETERINARY INDUSTRY
- How much profit are you really making after all your costs are taken into account?
- How do your three key cost headings compare with those of similar practices?
- How does your practice Transaction Volume Index (TVI – volume of client transactions at the ATV (ACT) per veterinarian FTE per day) compare with other practices?
- How does your practice performance compare with other practices in South Africa?
- What lessons can you learn from other similar practices to improve your business performance?
You can use this exclusive IVPD Benchmark Service from by Dr John Sheridan of Veterinary Business to compare your practice with the median and with the lower and upper quartiles of all the participating practices like yours.
Your data will be guaranteed as secure, your practice will be allocated a unique identification code and as soon as data from the first 25 IVPD member practices has been processed, you will receive an e.mail report which will compare your practice performance with the median, lower and upper quartiles of all the participating practices.
